It looks like Sammie is definitely pregnant! She is starting to show a bit of a pudge, so believe our girl is going to have puppies here in about a month! I am debating on whether or not I will be docking tails on all the puppies, so if you are looking for a pup, please let me know your thoughts on a docked tail or a natural tail.
It will be interesting to see what colors are possible with this litter, as the litter from Sammie’s dam, EmmaLee, when bred to the same stud, had 7 puppies, all who were either black tris or black piebalds, except for Colt, the only puppy that was an apricot. The sire to this litter is from an apricot dam, so there is once again potential for some color. There are some pups, like Maddie, who have red base on a lot of her black hair. I do not expect any chocolates. Will be interesting to see what she has!
In the meantime, here are some photos of her that I took yesterday while out for our walk. As well as a video of her on our daily walk with the goats and other dogs.
